Private Project

before chill

A video poem about aging/the changing of the seasons. Inspired by the signs that winter is about to happen here in this town that "has no seasons." Just like everywhere I've lived there is a pungency, a dryness in the whispering breeze that will grow into a raging wind in a few weeks, a stillness and a beautiful pearlescent sky.

Director Statement

I workshop my video performance art projects scene by scene on YouTube and Vimeo. I am quite psyched to be selling the kind of performance art that people go to galleries to see while sipping Chardonnay in the world’s biggest online marketplace.
